2. Spiritual Growth

3. Good Citizenship

4. Sportsmanship & Fitness

5. Family Understanding

6. Respectful Relationships

7. Personal Achievement

8. Friendly Service

9. Fun & Adventure

10. Preparation for Boy Scouts


The Cub Scouts of America colors are blue and gold. They have special meaning, which will help youth see beyond the fun of Cub Scouting to its ultimate goals. The blue stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty, and the sky above. The gold stands for warm sunlight, good cheer and happiness.

As a youth begins the Boy Scout Trail, he or she joins other boys or girls the same age. A youth can start the scouting program from 5 (starting kindergarten) to 17 years old.

The Bobcat rank is the first rank earned by Cub Scouts, no matter which grade they begin scouting, except for kindergarten Lion Scouts. After earning the Bobcat rank, the youth then begins earning an age-base rank. The Cub Scout age program is for kindergarten through 3rd graders - Lion scouts, Tiger scouts, Wolf scouts, and Bear scouts. After completing Bear scout requirements, scouts begin their Webelos program, and finish Cub Scouting with the Arrow of Light.
